The motor shaft 3'! is preferably provided with a brake collar .16 having a friction insert therein and an outwardly projecting screw H which is adapted for tightening the friction insert against the shaft 37 and for abutment, upon rotation of the shaft 31 against the outer of the brackets 4|. r r
In order to provide power for actuation of the motor 36 and for energization of the track rails,
any suitable source S of electric energy, such as p 1 direct currentor rectified alternating current is The power lead 14 is preferably connected to one 7 of the sections of the pit rail, such as the section l2a, and the power lead 151s preferably connected to the other pit rail section.
The conductor 14 is connected to the rail TSIb. A conductor 19 is provided connecting the rail TSlb to the opposite rail TS2b. A conductor 11 is provided, extending from the conductor I5 to the track rail TSla, beyond an insulating break 18 in the rail, and a conductor 85 is provided connecting the opposite rails TSla and TSZa. The opposite rails of the opposite track sections, such as TS3 and TS|4, and T54 and TSIE, etc. are similarly connected.
The other contacts of the switch DRS have the conductors 25 and 26 connected thereto.
In order to control the selective movement of the table T and the energization of the track sections TSI .and TS24, inclusive, in pairs, a control switch CS is provided. V
The control switch CS has a pair of banks of contacts indicated as A and B. The bank of contacts A preferably includes a contact arm 8| which is adapted to be connected by an annular contact bar 82 movable therewith, to all of a plurality of contacts ACI to ACI2, inclusive,
' except a selected one. The contact arm 8| is connected by a conductor 83 to the same contact of the switch DRS as that to which the'conductor 25 is connected. The contacts AC! to ACIZ, inclusive, are respectively connected, by conductors such as the conductor 84, to respective pairs of pins TP, the conductor 84 being shown as connected to pin TPI' (which is'in turn connected to pinTPZ by its conductor 28). h
The bank of contacts B preferably includes a contact arm 85 to which a conductor'st extends from the contact of the switch DRS to which the conductor 15 is connected. The contact arm 85 is adapted to selectively engage one of a lurality of contacts BC| to BC|2, inclusive. The contacts BCI to BCIZ, inclusive, are respectively connected by conductors such as the conductor 81, to one of the rails, such as the rail TS! a inwardly of the insulating break '18. The contact arms 8! and 85 are connected together for rotary movement by a shaft 53, having an operating and indicating knob or handle 89, at the front end thereof, and a position indicating dial 9D, for
indicating the position of the contact arms 8| and 85.
The mode of operation of the turntable will no be pointed out.
With" power supplied from the power sou ce S through the power leads 12 and i3 and the rheostat 14 and with a polarity as determined by the reversing switch RS, power will be supaeeasae done by turning the shaft 88 to a position to bring the contact arm 85 into engagement with the contact BCl. The roundhouse track section TSZ will be simultaneously energized through the conductors I9 and 80. polarity of the rails 54 and 55 on the table T will be determined by the engagement of the contacts 41 and 52 with the respective sections The energization and of the pit rail I2. When the locomotive has been moved onto the rails 54 and 55, the energizing circuit to the rails may then, if turning of the table T is desired, be interrupted by movement of the switch DRS.
The circuit for energizing the motor 36, which includes the contacts AC1 to ACI 2, inclusive, and the conductors and 26 is dependent upon the positioning of the switch DRS in the opposite position to that referred to above for track circuit energization.
If it is desired to move the table T, the switch I CS is positioned to move the contact arm 81; to a position corresponding to that to which the table T is to be moved. In this connection it will be noted that a motor energizing circuit is set up through the conductors 25 and 26,.' which includes, in series therewith, the switch 64. The switch 64 is normally effective to permit energization of the motor 36 except when the switch actuator is in engagement with a de- I energized pin TP.
With the motor 36 operated and turning the table T, as the switch actuator engages a pin TP it breaks the circuit through the switch 64, and if the pin TP is energized, an alternative energizing circuit is setup through the energized pin TP, the switch actuator 61., and conductor 65, to maintain the motor 36 energized. particular pin T)? is unenergized, by reason of the positioning of the contact :bar 82, the table T will stop at that location.
It will be noted that the swtich RS permits of reversal of polarity of the motor energizing current so that, by selection of the direction of,
If 'a.
rotation, the table T may be turnedin the direction required, i. e. clockwise or counterclockwise as the case may be, to bring it to the unenergized" pin TP for the track section TS atwhich stop ping is desired.
The rheostat M may be employed for regulat ing the speed of movement of the table "T as well as the speed of movement of the 'trainonto and from the track sections TS and. the rails 54 and 55.
The brake collar 10 and its abutment and adjusting screw H effect instant stopping of the motor 35, if desired, and prevent overrunning of the table T, so that upon stopping of the table T, the rails 54 and 55 will be alined with the rails of the particular track section TS at which the stop is made. The pins TP may be bent slightly if desired to provide a close stopping adjustment.
The brake collar 10 is .not always necessary with the table T loaded but is desirable for 013313 ation without any locomotive on the tracks it and 55. The collar 10 must not be too tight or overheating of the motor 36 may occur with prolonged operation.
It will be noted that the switch actuator 6| has a loose fit in the bracket arms 60a, the lost motion thereby provided also facilitating stopping with the rails 54 and 55 in proper alinement with the rails of an appropriate track section TS.
When the table 'I' has been moved to the desired position and has stopped it will remain in this position. Upon movement of the switch DRS to its initial energizing position, and with the switch RS positioned as desired to give the desired polarity, the locomotive will then be energized from the rails '54 and 55 to move onto the desired track section TS.
It will be noted that while only twelve positions are shown for the control switch CS it is possible to move the table T for delivery of the locomotive onto any one of twenty-four loca-.
tions, this being possible by reason of the interconnection of opposite pins TP and the reversibility of the motor '36 which permits the approach to the appropriate unenergized pin Tl? corresponding to the selected delivery position from a direction such that it will not be necessary to strike the opposite and unenergized pin TIP.
